Register interest for workshop on sustainable cities with Stockholm trio and UCL
The Cities Partnerships Programme Stockholm, comprising UCL (University College London) and the Stockholm trio (Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology & Stockholm University) invite you to express interest in two days of workshops 17-18 April in Stockholm.
The workshops will be held in person, in Stockholm, from lunchtime on 17 April 2023. They will conclude the following day.
We invite expressions of interest from scholars and practitioners across disciplines to explore collaboration between UCL and Stockholm. Awards of funds for travel and accommodation will be available to colleagues in London. Meals and refreshments will be provided to attendees by the three universities in Stockholm. We will particularly seek opportunities to support early-career scholars and those who are under-represented in this sort of activity.
You can register your interest online before 17 March 2023.
The workshops will run concurrent sessions focusing on each of the following themes relating to climate and health in urban settings. We welcome compelling suggestions for any additional theme - grounded in excellent work or potential between Stockholm and UCL - with which the workshops could productively engage.
